We stayed at Rusty's for four nights in July 2014 and had a very nice experience. The check-in was quick and the folks who run the place are very friendly, especially Bob. Our site was a long pull-through, as all of them are, and we had 50-amp electric service and sewer. They do not have TV hookups, which is just fine. Every site has a patio and fire pit, and the management is quite pet-friendly. The grounds are clean and there is a pond area that attracts a lot of birds. I did not check out the clubhouse or laundry area.
I felt a bit misled by their Web site, which stresses that each site is 1/4 acre. Perhaps this is so, but you will still be three feet away from another camper, because the hook-ups are set up back-to-back, just like any other RV park. So if you were expecting a little more privacy, don't. They also claim to have high-speed wireless Internet. During our stay, the internet was quite slow and was down for many hours, and all night in one case. I ended up paying Verizon extra money so that I could use my own Internet connection.
Overall, this is a very nice place that is close to Portal, AZ and the Coronado National Forest, which boasts some of the best birding in North America. I would stay here again with no hesitation, but I would make sure that I did not need to use the Internet very much. The price ($24 per night) was very reasonable.
